Me either lol just feel sorry for the ones on their way to the bin but thought I'd try it? Plus I love a bargain and the pot and saucer were only £2.50 though that was more than the plant!

Might be a Bromeliad. I used to have one but it became another of my casualties 😳 similar to the name on your sticker I just noticed 😀

@susanhumphrey333 mummy has come up with a flaming sword? Apparently after it blooms it produces offshoots which grow on as main plant sometimes die???

Sorry for late reply @Spudicus been on hols. Just realised I put it in the "hospital" where I seem to have lots of poorly plants at the moment and that's exactly what's happened. Will take the side shoots off and pot them up 😀
